Ban Details

https://www.imperialgaming.net/bans/detail/index.php?steamid=STEAM_0:0:32361926&time=1570962131

How long was the ban for: Permanent

Which staff member banned you: CONSOLE

What date did the ban occur: 13-10-19 20:22

What was the reason for the ban: Bypassing ban, Real ban reason was failing my probationary period.

Explain the situation in detail which led to you being banned:

I was playing IG on a 1 warn probationary period, where I started singing in a jail cell after being held for upwards of 10 minutes, for an offence only warranting 5 minutes. I believed that me singing in the cell was a RP element, however I was greeted by multiple shock troopers running in and calling admins, where i was warned for mic spam and permanently banned, without even asking my side of the story. At this point, I'm quite triggered at the unfairness of the ban. I then decided to fire up a few alts and joined back and unleashed an arsenal of exploits upon IG. Every time the server got popular enough, it would client overflow. Videos of this attack sparked up, such as https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=slWMJw9K-LM . I then received a community ban and lacked motivation to continue to exploit IG.

Time passes, and i began pursuing more mature and serious development, working on servers such as FG, EG, TM etc. It was here where i matured and started appreciating not being an idiot. I ended up handing the exploits which I used into the IG development team and suggested the best way of patching them. 

Why do you believe you deserve to be unbanned / given a second chance:

I don't believe that i necessarily deserve to be unbanned, nor even given the chance to. I am very sorry to the IG community for the damage that I inflicted upon the community. I do believe that everyone can change, and in my case i believe that i have. In the past, we've seen mass minge Kumo reform to become a developer. I believe that in my time since my ban I have matured and grown to be more of an ethical developer and person. That is why i believe that i deserve to be unbanned. In my time being banned I have assisted the IG developers in optimising the server, as an act of remorse.

NOTE: I have given hypo permission to post this appeal due to him helping out the past few months with development related issues.

I will also be placing a +1 on this appeal, whilst his actions in the past are essentially unforgivable and have caused hours of inability to play on the server I am a true believer that everyone can change, and through hypo helping in places throughout the server in terms of development I have seen this first-hand with him. I believe he should be given another chance on strict probation due to his willingness to reform.

Fuck it, he's done a lot of bad in the past, yes, I agree, however, he's a great developer who has used his knowledge in regards to development to hurt the server. This can't be denied, nor does he deny it in any way during the appeal at all which is respectable. The application in of itself is pretty terribly done in regards to grammar, but that's not the point of an appeal, the point is to see if the player has reformed, and in my opinion, it seems like he has. This is evident through the fact that he has been helping out behind the scenes for a while now and hasn't created an alt in a long while now.

Hypo has done a lot of bad, but I can see he wants to do a lot of good, and I'd rather have someone with his knowledge of exploits and development in GMod on our side of the barrier, rather than on the other. If he minges, or trolls, or does anything of the sort, well, he just gets banned again.

This is just my opinion, and it is subject to change.

Good luck with your appeal Hypo.

NOTE: I received permission from @Kumo to respond to this appeal.

I worked very closely with Hypo during the development of both RG and FG, and I feel as though I may have a unique perspective to offer.

Whilst Hypo has had a troubled past, he has completely turned his behaviour around. When we initially brought Hypo on board, I was full of concern, unwilling to trust him to even the smallest extent. He quickly alleviated my concerns, and put my mind at ease. Whilst I had seen his horrid behaviour on previous servers (RG comes to mind), he demonstrated none of that. He was professional, he was helpful, and he was responsible. Over time, I was able to place more and more trust in him, trust which he proved to be well placed. He was instrumental in our development, and a driving force behind several beneficial changes for the server, both in and out of character.

He now demonstrates a keen mind for roleplay, implementing various unique ideas in a beneficial way. He offers his assistance wherever he is able, and overall a positive force for those around him. Whilst I initially had reservations, now I wouldn't hesitate to welcome him into any server or community I participated in.

During the lifetime of IG, you have been banned four times all for various reasons. The first two are pretty common saying you were banned for being a minge and you had no intent to RP but the next to caught my eye. Your third ban was a COMMUNITY BAN for breaching your unban conditions, if you get unbanned, how will we know your not going to do that again. And the fourth one is for attempting to bypass your community ban. I see one thing with all these bans, that you have been given too many chances.

Thanks for the feedback.

 

I can't change the past, but I'm trying really hard to change the future. Many of those bans were years ago, when I was younger.

Good Evening @hypo (Or Good Morning)

If you're available tomorrow (Wednesday), I would like to discuss a few things with you. I would like you to pop around the TS server (If not possible, Discord will be fine) @ ~6:30 AEST.

If this time does not suit you or you have other commitments to attend please send me a forums message and we will go from there.

Accepted

Good Evening @hypo. After reviewing your appeal, and recent discussions with members of the Staff team, we are happy to inform you that your appeal has been accepted!

You will be placed on a strict 3 month probation period. If you are warned during this period your ban will be reinstated and you will have a sit down meeting with myself and Rex. Please take this time to familiarise yourself with the Imperial Gaming Rules.

Welcome back to the Server!
